Alaskan metal heavyweights 36 CRAZYFISTS have entered Garden Studios in Anchorage with guitarist Steven Holt at the helm to begin writing their new album for a tentative summer 2010 release. Vocalist Brock Lindow states, "I won't ramble on too much and tell you guys that this is our heaviest or moodiest record yet, but I will say its pretty f'n cool so far and we are very stoked."36 CRAZYFISTS' last album, "The Tide And Its Takers", sold 4,150 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 155 on The Billboard 200 chart. "The Tide And Its Takers" was released on May 27, 2008 via Ferret Music. The CD artwork was designed by Sons of Nero, who has previously worked with such bands as IN FLAMES, EVERY TIME I DIE, FULL BLOWN CHAOS and THE HUMAN ABSTRACT. 36 CRAZYFISTS' first live DVD, "Underneath A Northern Sky", came out on October 27. The effort was directed by good friend Todd Bell, who joined the band for a week's worth of revisiting old stomping grounds, listening to stories of the formation of the band and all the antics that come along with a group that has been around for more than 15 years. The DVD includes footage of the very first 36 CRAZYFISTS show as well as countless other rare scenes of globetrotting by a band from Alaska who has defied the odds of coming from a place of obscurity to touring and playing major festivals around the world. Along with the live show, ridiculous backstage antics and bandmember interviews, all the band's videos are also present on the DVD.
